Collect the following data by conducting individual interviews with mothers of (a representative sample of) children aged 0 - 23 months:
RECOMMENDED SURVEY QUESTION (Q) AND POSSIBLE ANSWERS (A)
Q1: How long after birth did you put [baby's name] to the breast?
1) within one hour of birth
2) within ________ hours of birth
3) within ________ days of birth
4) child was never breastfed
5) does not remember
If the respondent has more than one child aged 0 - 23 months, ask this question about all children aged 0 - 23 months.
To calculate the indicator's value, divide the number of children aged 0 - 23 months who were put to the breast within one hour of birth by the total number of children aged 0 - 23 months (excluding those who did not remember). Multiply the result by 100 to convert it to a percentage.
